Santa mugs on a budget

Hey y’all !  Today we reached 5k followers on our Instagram. ( How awesome is that ?! ) I have only y’all to thank !  The fact that 5k of you care to know what we’re doing on a daily basis is mind blowing to me.  The fact that you all choose to take time out of your busy life to comment, like , or even share on our Instagram is just … wow!… I have no words… you are all way too kind.  

So since so many of you liked our picture on Instagram of our Santa mugs I thought I’d let you in on a little budget friendly secret…..

I know you have all seen many inspiration pictures of the  pottery barn santa mugs floating around over the past few years. ( They are so beautiful! )  This year , if you don’t already know , we are listing our home in January and good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, we will be buying , flipping , and moving into an RV.  With that being said , our Christmas decor this year is very minimal.  Most of our decor we decided to donate and the small amount that we do have left we have already packed away.  Even in the home that we will be building we plan to take a very minimal approach to decorating so boxes on boxes of stored Christmas decor just isn’t necessary.  So back to the cute little Santa’s…. without unpacking the boxes we are keeping and without spending much money ( every penny is going to building right now ) I wanted to recreate the look of the  pottery barn and vintage Santa mugs.  Would you believe me if I told you I only spent $5 TOTAL on 5 mugs?!  Well you should because I found these  babies at none other than the DOLLAR TREE !!!  Can you believe it ?! 

On my Dollar Tree run I also picked up a couple of Christmas serving treys, the cutest Santa ornaments, candy canes to decorate our tree (since we’re skipping the ornaments too this year) , and these gold bells that I sanded to look vintage and tied to some twine to create simple garland.  It’s amazing all of the things we can create without breaking the bank !  

Many of you asked about our Santa mugs so I thought I’d let you in on our secret  here on the blog first!  If you decide to re-create this dollar tree, Santa mug look we would LOVE to see it and share it on our Instagram ! Just use the hashtag #TGOBmademedoit .   

Love always , Savannah

  • It is beautiful here in Georgia.  All the doors and windows are open, I’m planting some new seeds, and packing up some extra dishes in our kitchen.  I’m already missing this view a little bit... ☀️🌱🌻🌞 .

  • I’m sitting here trying to figure out why it took me 25 years to realize that it’s not material things, financial security, or a planned future that matter. All that really sets my soul on fire is the well-being of the people around me. There is something infinitely healing about the process of nature and knowing that He has made everything beautiful in its time. We lose so much energy planning and preparing; and we forget to embrace each and every season. We forget that that’s where happiness stems from. Do the world a favor today: live for the moment and be great. If God can take a winter like this one and turn it into spring, the work He can do in you is limitless. 🌿🌷☀️🌱 .

  • We are LOVING this spring time weather we’ve been having.  We’ve already been to the park, gone out for breakfast, and rode our bikes around the neighborhood.  What are your plans for the day?! What’s the weather like in your part of the world?! Happy Tuesday, friends!  I challenge you all to be a light today. I think the world always needs more of that. 🤗😘🤩 .

  • I never realized how much of a candle hoarder I was until I started cleaning out this little secretaries desk just now. 😳🤷🏻‍♀️🕯🤣 This little piece of furniture is my LAST ONE to clean out before listing! 😱😃 New weed guard liner and pine straw is going down as we speak.  It’s getting close, y’all! Happy Monday! .

  • This weekend has been amazing. It’s been sunny and 70°, our doors have been open all weekend, and tonight the kids bath water was completely brown from playing in the mud.🤣😳😂 I’d call that a win !  My parents came over today and we got SO much accomplished here at the house !  We should be listing very very soon. Thank you ALL for the love, support, and kind words on our journey. It all means the world and never goes unnoticed. I hope you all had an amazing weekend also!! .

  • We just finished up our last basketball game of the season and had our banquet!  This mama is so proud of Rylee Gray’s first basketball season!  If you’re looking for us today we’ll be nailing up a few fence boards and pressure washing the house... considering it’s 70° outside. 😳🤷🏻‍♀️🏡😂 Yes...Monday we had a snow day...you do remember correctly.  Have a great Saturday, y’all !! .
